Firstly, apologies in advance for initiating this thread when the solution to my problems is likely already posted somewhere on this forum. In my defense I did have a scan of previous threads but could find no answers.
I recently installed version 0.1.1 of ResidualVM on my MacBook, an older model operating with OS 10.5.8. As instructed, I created a folder containing all necessary Grim Fandango files (those ending in extension .LAB; GRIM.TAB; and gfupd101.exe.) I directed ResidualVM to this folder on my Desktop and it seemed to identify it without an issue. It was added to the ResidualVM directory as Grim Fandango (Windows/English), and I eagerly clicked Start so that I could reunite with Manny and co.
Unfortunately, soon after I encountered a recurring problem that I've yet to rectify. Grim Fandango begins as normal, with the intro cutscene. However, when it comes time for the transition from cutscene to gameplay, the game/program ALWAYS freezes. This freeze affects not just ResidualVM, but my entire computer. I cannot start any other applications. I of course cannot close ResidualVM. Everything is frozen.
As I said, this happens at the same point every time - when the game should transition from the end of the intro cutscene to the commencement of gameplay. I don't know if there's an issue with the files I copied or if I'm missing something, but any insight would be greatly appreciated.
(FYI - for whatever it's worth I tried downloading and then running both the Intel and Power PC disk images of ResidualVM 0.1.1, with both ultimately having this same result.)
